Regarding to Visionatica's new album called ''Enigma Fire'' I got to do a small email interview with bassist Tim and guitarist Manu.
How are you all doing?
Manu: Great, thank you so much! You are writing with Manu and Tim.
Let’s start with a little presentation. Who is VISIONATICA and how was the band formed?
Manu: ‘’VISIONATICA is a German symphonic metal band with crystal clear soprano vocals, hard guitars and bass, impressive orchestra elements and powerful drums.
Led by vocalist Tamara Amedova alongside guitarist Manuel Buhl, drummer Gerhard Spanner, and bass player Tim Zahn, Visionatica first entered the symphonic metal scene in 2016. With fantastic, crystal clear soprano vocals combined with powerful grooves, melodic guitars, and orchestral elements, the band announced themselves with their debut album, “Force Of Luna”. The band’s second album, “Enigma Fire” marks the beginning of their newly minted worldwide collaboration with Frontiers Music Srl.
September 12 gave us a new part in the Ghost lore. On September 13, Ghost has struck us with surprise with a new EP containing two ‘’brand new’’ tracks ‘’Kiss The Go-Goat’’ and ‘’Mary On A Cross’’. In the video, Papa Nihil claims it to be a re-release of his songs with Ghost in the sixties.
Colossal swells erupt from a vast ocean of human suffering and universal dread and in their wake present to us the latest offering from the minds of Carnifex: ‘’World War X’’. Soul darkening, eye-bloodying, flesh crushing death metal is to be expected from this group of musicians, yet with the new album comes a unique notion of unavoidable hopelessness; the inevitable rot of mankind. Carnifex has stoked the coals and breathed a distinct power into ‘’World War X’’.
With their new album, Tanzwut spins fantastic stories out of delicately woven ‘’Seemannsgarn“ (sailor’s yarn). An exciting journey into the world of fantasy, poets, musicians, artists and puppeteers. Teufel and his band carry off into a world of fiction and reality and provides a vibrant setting for all the different shades of the told stories.
From the country that gave us bands like King Diamond, Pretty Maids and Volbeat comes the newcomers of hard hitting melodic Danish heavy metal: Pectora. Since the formation of the band in 2013 Roskilde based Pectora have released the demo ”Burgeon Of Hate” in 2014 and the EP ”Redemption” in 2017. All of them leading up to their bombastic debut album ”Untaken” to be released through Mighty Music in May 2019.
Jupiter is a Japanese visual kei symphonic power metal band, formed in 2013 by four of the five members of Versailles. After several personnel changes, guitarists Hizaki and Teru remain the only original members, with drummer Daisuke and vocalist Kuze completing the current lineup.
An elusive name born amidst Switzerland's highest mountains. Never quite fitting in any of the numerous galleries metal has to offer, drifting through the extremes whilst juxtaposing finesse and vehemence from an unworldly orchestra, endlessly exploring the vast echoic gloominess of the human mind.
Last year lift the band the secret of the Schattenmann’s identity and took the Gothic scene by assault. Within two years, singer Frank Herzig raised the future of Neue Deutsche Härte
together with his band mates Luke Shook (bass) and Jan Suk (guitars), last year drummer Nils
Kinzig completed the line-up. Together, they brought the slightly outdated genre, invented by
groups like Rammstein and Oomph!!!, back to life and with their support tournees with bands
like Megahzer, Hämatom and Unzucht.
Baroness began life in Savannah, Georgia in 2003 even though all members of the band hail from Lexington, Virginia. Baroness eschew publicity, promotion and press kits, hence the sparseness of this bio. What they do is let their music speak for itself in the form of their live performances. Their touring schedule is relentless, with the band often playing over 250 gigs a year.
